Adrian Peterson: Vick would make Vikes a playoff team

Michael Vick is looking for a new team and a chance at a starting job this offseason, which could lead to a conversation with the Vikings since they are in the market for a new starting quarterback.

One member of the Vikings thinks that the two sides could make some beautiful music together. Running back Adrian Peterson tweeted on Wednesday night that Vick “would intently make the Vikings a playoff team.”

We’re guessing that Peterson may have meant to type instantly as the NFL Network’s Twitter account had asked followers to fill in a blank about which team Vick would instantly make a playoff contender. There are plenty of people who would feel otherwise, if for no other reason than that Vick hasn’t started more than 13 games in a season since 2006. Peterson was still in college at that point.

Vick doesn’t seem like an obvious choice to play in a Norv Turner-run offense, either, but Peterson’s clearly looking for someone who can end the quarterback carousel of last year and help make something out of what’s left of the running back’s prime years. He thinks Vick can do that and we’ll likely find out if his team agrees in the next few weeks.
